I bought the jacket for a trip to Amsterdam to see the tulips, but had to return it. When I returned this jacket to Sierra, the return label included a selection for "it just didn't fit", which was exactly right. I loved the jacket, and it had a big inside pocket about 11" x 9" the jacket folded into that turned into a pillow. When I zipped it, though, the fitted waistline was about 2" below my natural waistline, which was just not comfortable. The shoulders and and arm length were perfect. The large collar was a bit awkward, but not really a problem, I considered it more of a style feature than utility, and it was cute! My natural waistline is 17" from the bottom of my neck. The jacket was about 19" and that put the tightest part around my hips at nearly their fullest part. I usually fit a size small very well, from 4 to 6 depending on the brand, so I am dissapointed this was not the case with this jacket. I could use that extra 2" in my torso, and many people my size have that. So jacket gets a double thumbs up, but unfotunately, I am the wrong body type to wear it.
